* ''ComicBook/DruidCity'': The series starts with a [[http://druidcitycomic.com/comic/volume-1-page-092/ very simple, poorly penned style]], done entirely with a computer mouse. The artist for the series originally wanted to place as many limits on himself as possible. The methods changed starting in [[http://druidcitycomic.com/comic/volume-2-page-012/ Volume 2]], where everything is drawn with a stylus and the artist has more experience with the personal style used in the series. Now that Volume 3 has started, the artist has also announced that Volume 1 will be redone with a stylus and more detail, so as to not scare away new readers.

** Ibáñez art style evolved during the first 15 years of the series. At first, the strip was black and white, resembling the art style from the American cartoons of the 1930s and 1940s with some traits of French comic books. The character design was also different, with a Filemón that resembled Sherlock Holmes and a Mortadelo that had an umbrella and a hat from which he got his disguises. During this time, Ibáñez started to get more and more influenced by French and Belgium comic artists of the time, specially Creator/AndreFranquin. These influences got reflected in the series until the mid 1960's, when his own style got more or less defined.
** It's worth mentioning "''El sulfato atómico''", the series first 44-pages story released in 1969. The art style in this volume is the most detailed and elaborated Ibáñez has ever drawn, which is one of the main reasons why it is considered his masterpiece. However, putting that much effort in that art style turned out to be too time consuming, so Ibáñez decided to go back to his less-detailed style so he could focus on the humour gags and be able to release more volumes a year.

* Lady Quark first appeared in ''ComicBook/CrisisOnInfiniteEarths'' as the sole survivor of another world wherein she was queen of the monarchy. Her appearance reflected this, and she looked like she was in her forties or early fifties. When she appeared in ''Starman'', this appearance was kept. However, when she became a regular in ''L.E.G.I.O.N.'', she was drawn to look a bit younger. As the series went on, she was drawn to look younger and younger until it seemed like she was in her twenties or very early thirties. By ''ComicBook/{{Convergence}}: [[ComicBook/{{Supergirl}} Supergirl Matrix]], she looked like she was in her mid-twenties, ''at oldest''.

* While [[ComicBook/SpiderMan Spider-Man's]] basic design has stayed pretty consistent, there's been a number of changes throughout the years. When he was first drawn by Creator/SteveDitko, Spidey's eyes were much smaller, and he had web nets underneath his arms. When John Romita took over drawing, the web wings grew smaller, and his eyes grew a little larger. By the '80s, the web wings were completely gone, and the eyes started being drawn absolutely huge compared to Ditko's art style. Today, the eye size still fluctuates from artist to artist, but hardly anyone includes the web wings.

* ''ComicBook/TheWalkingDead'' changed artists between volumes 1 and 2.

* ''ComicBook/TheWalkingDead'' changed artists between volumes 1 and 2. And if you compare Charlie Adlard's art from Volume 2 to the art in the present day, that looks quite different as well.

** Parodied/Lampshaded in a ''DorkTower'' strip celebrating ''Magazine/{{Dragon}}'''s 30th anniversary. The strip purports to show how the three strips then running have evolved over the years. A genuine early Nodwick, crude stick figures that are supposed to be "early ''[[Creator/PhilFoglio What's New?]]''", and an "early Carson the Muskrat" ... who is actually Webcomic/{{Yamara}}.

* ''{{Nodwick}}'' gradually got more stylised during its time in ''Magazine/{{Dragon}}'' magazine. Most notably, in the early strips, Nodwick's nose and Piffany's glasses are both realistically sized. (One strip suggests Nodwick's nose has gained mass to balance out the stuff he's expected to carry on his back, and in an interview Aaron Willia says Piffany's eyes keep getting wider with shock at what her teammates get up to.)

* This also happened with LoveAndCapes, between [[http://www.loveandcapes.com/readit/lnc0104.html the first appearance of Abby and Mark]] and [[http://www.loveandcapes.com/readit/lnc0145.html just an issue later.]]
* ''ArchieComics'' has gone through some serious redesigns over the past 50+ years. The art was simplified sometime within the 60s or 70s and occasionally Archie tries out a new design - to which they always return to the "classic" one in the end.
